Not so much of a technical question, more advice. If you were in my position and had around 20K that you could use freely on whatever you wanted for your car, (1989 IROCZ) what would you do?? I was leaning towards maybe an LSX swap with some kind of power adder and do the whole Street/Strip weekend warrior thing. Hopefully building the suspension for that setup, doing the whole shabang, 9" rear, built tranny, fuel system, wheels tires, doing the interior, and whatever safety precautions the car would need. So I am looking for opinions on what you guys would personally do if you were in my situation. And no I dont want to sell the car and buy something else with the money, I know they are sick mullethead beaters but I love 3rd gens and wanna make this one just as nice or better than 4th gens. So I would appreciate your guys input!! Thanks so much.

I was seriously thinking about doing that also. But the only thing is that Im afraid if I get a new one I wont wanna touch it because its a brand new car! I like getting my hands dirty and building something from scratch. Plus those are gonna be some serious $$$$$$$$$$$!

Get a cheap 4th gen and mod the piss out of it.
Cheap? Cheapest LS1 car in good condition that I have ever came across was 8K. Thats almost half my budget.

It sure is, but is quite a bit enough? Not for me lol. I wanna build a car with 800whp, 15mpg, and perfect street driveability. I already have a good foundation, car doesnt need appearance mods at all it already looks good. Just needs to run good too.

It's possible with a turbo LS1, Sean at Solid makes 830rwhp and gets around 15mpg. If you're gonna turbo it, just use a small cube LS1 and run about a 76mm turbo, good gas mileage and plenty of power. If you need more power, add 100 shot. That should go low 9's...

Just be sure to lengthen the injector pulse and tune the NOS time, then you'll run 9's.

Do you know the specs on Sean at Solidtechs Camaro? Like CI, Turbo size, what computer he uses?

Thats exactly what I wanna do. With an A2W IC 4L80E and a bolt in Currie 9".
Fully streetable 9sec 800whp third gen??? Holy shit. That would be sick.
